LETTER: What state will take the lead on green energy?

There is no federal mandate compelling the use of fossil fuels. With several pre-eminent states favoring eliminating fossil fuels due to their damaging effects, along with the promise of good-paying jobs by transitioning to green energy, why is there any hesitation for these states to act on their convictions?

Many of these states have both a wealthy electorate and majority green energy support. By urgently implementing green energy use and eliminating fossil fuels, they could prove to skeptics that it is feasible and cost-effective.

We are told that there is no more time to equivocate, we must act. Elected officials tell us it is a matter of climate justice, climate equality and climate security. If one state proves that it’s possible, the rest will easily follow.
